preparation data for Convolutional Neural Network in regression approach

6 views (last 30 days)
dear my friends Thanks for your guidance.
I've another question. after that, I was disappointed with LSTM Regression Layer in Matlab, i tried to use a Normal CNN for my Time series prediction. in my codes initially, i changed the dimensional of data from [1*1000] to [3*997] (with consideration time delays).
because it should be similar to an image input then changed this 2-dimensional matrix to 4-dimensional matrices, to be a proper Input data for CNN layer. and after that trained a CNN network and then finally check the prediction results with the real targets, the strange point is prediction scales is much less than the real targets, I don't have any idea Why this happened?
Many Thanks Abolfazl Nejatian
Here is my code
function RegressionCNN()
clc; clear; close all;
%%load data
X = xlsread('forexTest.xlsx');
NumDelay = 4;
Delays = setDelays(NumDelay);
[Inputs, Targets] = CreateTimeSeriesData(X', Delays);
Inputs = Inputs';
Targets = Targets';
nData = size(Inputs,1);
PERM = 1:nData; % Permutation to Shuffle Data
pTrain = .8;
nTrainData = round(pTrain*nData);
TrainInd = PERM(1:nTrainData);
TrainInputs = Inputs(TrainInd,:);
TrainTargets = Targets(TrainInd,:);
pTest = 1-pTrain;
nTestData = nData-nTrainData;
TestInd = PERM(nTrainData+1:end);
TestInputs = Inputs(TestInd,:);
TestTargets = Targets(TestInd,:);
%%Creat LSTM Layers
layers = [ ...
imageInputLayer([size(Inputs,2) 1],'Name','rinput');
%%Train LSTM network
maxEpochs = 200;
shuffle = 'never';
miniBatchSize = 10;
options = trainingOptions('sgdm', ...
'MaxEpochs',maxEpochs, ...
'Shuffle', shuffle,...
Y = TrainTargets;
X = TrainInputs';
X = build4DData(X);
net = trainNetwork(X,Y,layers,options);
%%Test Network
XTest = TestInputs';
TestTargets = TestTargets;
XTest = build4DData(XTest);
YPred = predict(net,XTest, ...
%%plot the results
close all
format long
YPred = double(YPred);
Errors = TestTargets - YPred;
MSE = mean(Errors.^2);
RMSE = sqrt(MSE);
ErrorMean = mean(Errors);
ErrorStd = std(Errors);
subplot(2,2,[1 2]);
hold on;
ylabel('Targets and Outputs');
grid on;
title(['MSE = ' num2str(MSE) ', RMSE = ' num2str(RMSE)]);
grid on;
histfit(Errors, 50);
title(['Error Mean = ' num2str(ErrorMean) ', Error StD = ' num2str(ErrorStd)]);
function XNew = build4DData(x)
XNew = zeros(size(x,1),1,1,size(x,2));
XNew(:,1,1,:) = x(:,:);
